Nintendo Direct: SNES games available on New 3DS
Nintendo is offering a few of its most classic titles for players on the go, as a suite of Super Nintendo titles are coming to the New Nintendo 3DS.
As part of its Nintendo Direct, the company revealed that SNES games will be coming to the company’s handheld over the upcoming weeks. Nintendo made three games immediately available following its direct: Super Mario World, Pilotwings, and F-Zero. Super Mario Kart, EarthBound, and Donkey Kong Country will come to the system on March 24, while The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Super Metroid, and Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy Kong’s Quest arrive on April 14.
Nintendo has previously made SNES games available for its home consoles, but these releases offer players a chance to play for the first time (or the 10th for longtime Nintendo fans) some of the company’s most beloved games. (Note: Players will need to own the New 3DS console, not the original model of the handheld.)
Nintendo also revealed several new games, including a new Kirby and Paper Mario game during the Direct, as well as a companion game to Star Fox Zero, Star Fox Guard. Watch the SNES reveal and the rest of the Direct below.
